Job opportunities at World Bank Group

The World Bank just advertised two jobs with very strong knowledge and learning components. One job is for a Sr Knowledge and Learning specialist to lead the Bank's Knowledge Management and operational learning program.

These are positions from where one can really help influence a Bank-wide agenda.

Both jobs are…

MPs not VIPs: US$55M on Cars but Liberians Live Under Poverty Line

013

By Yasmin Anis, Accountability Lab Summer Resident.

Every day as I ride along on my penh-penhs (motorbike taxis)- what I consider to be Liberia’s premier mode of transportation, I inevitably see one or two huge black SUVs with tinted windows pass by. I look over, trying to determine which VIP is inside. No doubt they are staring back at me with…

Post2015 Priorities

Although much is being debated about the post2015 priorities, its highly imperative to note that the goals  are not just Sustainable but will also contribute greatly towards human development. From reducing extreme poverty in MD G's to completely ending poverty in SD G's, the post2015 agenda is a fundamental goal towards world's development. This process avails an opportunity for every country to participate and map out the needs of every citizen.

It is my desire to write about one…

How to effectively measure and evaluate South-South Cooperation?

We are in the era of data creation. Everything there are tables with data gathering from literally thousand of sources. Everyday new "south south activities" are being developed by multilateral organizations, yet I haven't seen much on the impact and evaluation of such activities. Many could say that a study tour or workshop was a success because it gathered many experts, etc. But how do you effectively measure and evaluate a South-South Cooperation Activity? Is there a methodology for…
